I just stumbled upon what I think is my new favorite jewelry designer. Called Alkemie, the company is run by design team Dara Gerson & Ashley Lowengrub. They make all of their bracelets, rings, necklaces, belts and earrings from 100% reclaimed metal. Everything is handcrafted in their LA studio. AND they give 5% of their profits to charity! This month, the donations are going to the Seva Foundation, a Berkeley based non-profit that provides financial resources and technical expertise to help communities build sustainable solutions to poverty and disease. Adding Alkemie jewelry to my wishlist!
